Aisha Badru’s voice hovers softly but powerfully over hypnotizing instrumentals throughout her first album, Pendulum, which explores the lowest lows and the highest highs on the spectrum of human experience. “Have you seen the girl with a heart as big as the sea / She looks just like you and just like me,” she sings brightly on the album’s opening track, “Mind on Fire.”
Join The Wild Honey Pie for a holiday celebration and share in all the pendulum swings of emotions over a comforting Italian dinner at Le Fanfare on December 19. You will be treated to a warming three-course meal and an unlimited supply of beer and cider followed by an intimate performance. As with all of our dinners, this is a great opportunity to meet new people and discover a new artist. We have been following Aisha Badru since she started releasing music and can promise you an evening you will not want to miss.
Bonus for all attendees, we are partnering with Hamilton Rums. Ed Hamilton, known to some as the Minister of Rum, has travelled the world. After 20 years in the Caribbean he now brings us one of the highest quality and most transparent selection of Rums available. We will have a specialty vegan Coquito available made with their delicious spirits available for purchase at a discounted price. #hamiltonrums
